Kermit Moyer grew up an Army brat in the 1950s. By the time he graduated from high school, he had lived and gone to school in Honolulu, Hawaii; Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland; Columbia, South Carolina; the suburbs of Philadelphia; the island of Okinawa; Dallas, Texas; and Augusta, Georgia, where he graduated from high school. He got his BA, his MA and his PhD in English from Northwestern University, and in 1970 joined the faculty of the Literature Department at American University in Washington, DC, where he taught for the next 37 years, until his retirement as Professor Emeritus in 2007. During that time he won the University Award for Outstanding Teacher of the Year, served a term as Chair of the Literature Department, and served as Director and Co-Director of the MFA Program in Creative Writing. After publishing critical essays on F. Scott Fitzgerald and the filmmaker Robert Altman, he began publishing short fiction in such journals as The Georgia Review, The Southern Review, The Sewanee Review, and The Hudson Review, and in 1988, the University of Illinois Press published a collection of his stories entitled Tumbling that was called "impeccable" and hailed as "a work of ringing authenticity" by the New York Times Book Review. He retired from full-time teaching in 2007, and in 2010, his first novel, The Chester Chronicles, will be published by The Permanent Press. Kermit Moyer lives with his wife Amy and their dog Zora on Cape Cod.
